Twice in the last 3 days I've been hit with Meta Moderation" over on Slashdot.

They implemented a "karma" system and went with a user moderated system on postings.

only site admins can delete posts, but those tasked with moderating posts can rate flamebait / toll posts as such, harming the karma of the member that posted.
to avoid abuse of that power, they have members Meta Moderate the moderators, and if that is abused then the user gets all moderator ability permanently revoked.

I understand that slashdot is trying to reduce the flamewar and troll postings with the system, I just think it's odd that I get tapped twice in a few days to Meta Moderate.
I have yet to get tapped to moderate, only to Meta Moderate.

TR Weirdness

I would point out that the political posting don't seem to be making the hot list anymore.

I don't know if that is a bug or a bit of Orwellian moderation gone amuck.

They started that almost a year ago

Remember the "too hot for TR"?

They take anything that is too non-tech related and remove it from the "hot" list no matter how active it is.

For a while they were even doing it to the Friday Yuks, until they became a little more mainstream.

Now I know that I will have to await the arrival of Citizen V to correct the error by tapping on someone's noogie with the hammer of education. :)

That must be what is refered to as a Freudian slip?

I am betting hubby is afraid if he even brushes up against her in the hall she might be with child again? Must be some strong stuff that man is working with?
